'The Blood Beast Terror' Blu-ray Announced

Posted Wed Jun 27, 2012 at 10:00 AM PDT by

Vernon Sewell's 1968 monster movie also known as 'The Vampire-Beast Seeks Blood' will suck Blu-ray dry next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, Kino Video says 'The Blood Beast Terror' will hit Blu-ray on July 17.

Horror icon Peter Cushing ('Horror of Dracula') stars as Detective Inspector Quennell, brought in to investigate the deaths. He consults entomology professor Mallinger (Robert Flemyng), but the doctor seems to be hiding a dark secret about his fetching young daughter, Clare (Wanda Ventham). The deeper Quennell digs into their story, the bloodier the violence, until he discovers a terrifying truth about Mallinger's experiments that is only revealed in the gruesome final reel.

Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements will include a stills gallery and the original theatrical trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.95.
